This holiday season, Park Meadows is teaming up with Tattered Cover + Kids for Storytime with local celebrities and heroes! Every Saturday, at 10 a.m., kids can gather at the holiday pop-up on the lower level, near American Eagle and Wafels & Dinges, and listen to an exciting lineup of guest readers share some of the most magical books!
This Saturday, October 30th, the special guest reader is Steve Getchell. He is the Principal at Copper Mesa Elementary School in Highlands Ranch. Mr. Getchell says he was honored to be asked to read some stories as he loves reading himself and enjoys reading to kids. He has been in education for 34 years, all spent in elementary education, where he was a classroom teacher for ten years and an administrator for the remainder of the time. Mr. Getchell says some of his most memorable times as a principal are when he's asked to read a story to his students. He also enjoyed reading to his own children, who are now adults, and now to his grandchildren. In his spare time, you will find him curled up with a good mystery book, hiking, gardening, riding his bike, paddle boarding or snowshoeing.
Get to Park Meadows early this Saturday to join in on the fun at 10 a.m.!

November 18th-December 18th
Copy: After being lonely for 18 months in her gingerbread house, Ginger is ready to get out, explore and shop at Park Meadows! Kids can pick up clues about her route at Santa’s Winter Wonderland and select retailers. They will be tasked with spotting the 4 Gingers along Ginger’s hiking route and coloring her pictures in once they’ve found her. After that, they flip the sheet over, a parent or adult shares a phone number and email address, and the child gets to choose from 7 participating retailers and franchises they’d like to drop their form off at to be entered for a weekly drawing for a $15 gift card. The only catch is that they have to solve each riddle to find each location.
